Hi, This error appears if you try to install a 32-bit driver on a 64-bit machine. To be able to install your package on 32-bit and 64-bit machines too, you can create a mixed package which installs different driver on each machine. Also, you need to have a different INF file for the 32-bit and 64-bi...

Re: Warning 4154 While adding Pre-intsall feature In EXE peoject

Hi Balaji, If you're still gettting the 4154 warning, then the install condition criteria is not correct. To avoid that message, you need to create an install condition that is met after prerequisite installation, e.g. a registry search. Maybe the related prerequisite will create some specific regis...

Re: Not able to use "Per-machine if the user is an administrator, per-user otherwise" install type

Hello,

Indeed, this dialog is not automatically added. You need to add it from the predefined list of dialogs. Use the Add Dialog option as you can see in my printscreen.
